IABC Dallas History


The Dallas chapter of IABC has been in existence, in some form or fashion, since 1942 (1938, if you start with Dallas’ participation in the Southwestern Association of Industrial Editors). Throughout its colorful history, the organization has borne a variety of titles as the face of the industry has constantly shifted. Its commitment to encouraging excellence in communications, however, has remained unwavering. Today, the chapter is stronger than ever, with a membership of more than 275 communications professionals.
